Thurisaz: With fair share of bumps along the road….

Thurisaz – Re-Incentive

With a career spanning over two decades, Belgium’s Thurisaz is a band that like so many other bands with such longevity has had its fair share of bumps along the road.

The story behind their forthcoming album Re-Incentive started a couple of years ago… A dear friend of the band was coping with severe depression. Working a dead-end job for several years, he went from burned out to depressed. It’s a nasty, poisonous thing, depression… 

During that time one of the band members, as well as another good friend from the band, had to deal with a break-up. So when the band sat down and discussed the theme of the new songs, they decided to go with a concept-like album covering the darkness one feels when dealing with the feelings of depression and heartbreak.

Working around these concepts while living thru such turbulent period of time wasn’t easy for the band and songs took some time to be completed as Thurisaz had to write them, ditch them all together and rewrite them before finally being satisfied with the end result. The track Monologue,

Matter is essential

Life is consequential

Man’s gods align central

In the weariness of his mind

Behold the perfect kind!

I am the dark, that whispers through the solid ground

I’m deep within, a silence turns in a rumbling sound

I am the lord that guides you to the end of light

Now let’s begin, I’ll show you the way inside

I’ll show you how you died

I am your darkest fear

(You’ve got) nowhere to go

There’s nothing more, nothing to do

I am the dark that holds your light

I am the spellbound, that keeps you cold at night

And I am the dark

That forever holds your light

Spellbound by

The blackness of the night

The night is bright

May your light forever shine

Recorded and engineered at CCR Studio by Kris Belean, Mettez Nick and Theuwen Peter, and mastered at Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren, the new album Re-Incentive shows a band in full command of their craft, perfectly balancing a dark, heavy atmosphere with some poignant and beautiful melodies. Overcoming the trials and tribulations of a seasoned band, this album really showcases Thurisaz in the best shape of their career.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4365 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
